Built during the days of grand sugar plantations, Vervain Mill was originally a working, wind-powered mill for processing sugar cane. Located on the southeast side of the island, part way up the hill toward Mt. Nevis where ocean breezes cool and refresh, Vervain Mill offers three bedrooms, three baths, beautiful furnishings, swimming pool, gazebo, architectural ruins, and lots of privacy.

Rates quoted are for one-bedroom occupancy high and low season. For larger travel parties please check rate schedule. The whole property is open and available no matter the size of your travel party.

How to get there
Airport: NEV: 5.0 km
Ferry: Charlestown: 5.0 km
Nevis is a tiny island and it's a bit of an adventure to get to. We suggest looking at flights through San Juan (then to Nevis on Seaborne or Tradewind), through St. Maarten (and then to Nevis on Winair), or through St. Kitts (and then to Nevis by island ferry or water taxi that can be arranged by Kay Loomis).
